  • Morning Coffee: Ralphs deals delayed

    I’ve fallen quite behind here on the site, and I’ve got some serious catching up to do (though there will be no drugstore starter posts this week, since it’s already Wednesday – I’ll get back to those next week). The Ralphs deals will be up later today, and here are the rest of the deals worth noting:

    Amazon’s Holiday Lightning Deals today include the Toy Story Ultra Blast Gauntlet at 11 a.m. PST (for less than $29.99), a Barbie at 2 p.m. (for less than $15.99), a Fisher Price Cradle Swing at 2 p.m. (for less than $105.99), and the Millenium Falcon at 4 p.m. Disclosure: I’m an Amazon affiliate, so any purchase you make after entering Amazon through a link on Chief Family Officer supports this site at no additional cost to you. Thank you!

    Amazon’s daily Video Game Deal is on “EA Action Games” like Medal of Honor.


    Speaking of video games, Lego Star Wars III: The Clone Wars is available for pre-order, and you’ll get a $10 credit toward a future video game purchase with your pre-order (the game comes out 2/15/11). Amazon offers a pre-order price guarantee, so if the Amazon.com price decreases between your order time and the end of the day of the release date, you’ll receive the lowest price. Our entire family is looking forward to playing this game!

    The official Video Game Deal of the Day is Batman: Arkham Asylum for $14.99, which is supposed to be extremely good (and gets 4 1/2 out of 5 stars in over 300 reviews) but is not for kids.

    The free holiday mp3 of the day is Joseph Dear Oh Joseph Mine by Mannheim Steamroller.

    If you still need photo cards, SeeHere is offering 50 free photo cards with code 50cards. Shipping is about $4.99, or you can order 60 cards to get free shipping and pay approximately $4.90 for the extra cards. I am going to see if I can order 6 different sets of 10 “thank you” cards with this offer. Don’t forget to go through a shopping portal to get cash back – Ebates is currently offering 12% back, but they don’t list the coupon code so they could refuse to honor the cash back offer. (Via Coupon Geek.) Update: It worked! I ordered 5 different cards (12 of each), and paid $4.90 + tax.

    Tia’s Saving Cents has some hot Walgreens match ups, and Common Sense with Money has some mid-week scenarios.

    Money Saving Mom reports that you can get Target Holiday Partyware for $0.83.

    Christian Clippers has this week’s Stater Bros. match ups.

    Centsible Savings has a great example of how you can make a terrific, healthy meal inexpensively when you use coupons.

    Get $10 via PayPal when you try the Green Dot MoneyPak card. The card itself should be about $5 and available at drugstores and supermarkets with the rest of the gift cards, making this a $5 moneymaker.
